another idea, again, in the 64bit app, on the Config TAB, set Subtitles to NO Subtitles.

Still nothing...I had tried that before as well. This is proving to be a real pain.

I have an identical AVI sample here and do not have any problems with it all.
This makes troubleshooting your problem very difficult.

I wonder... have you rebooted your computer at all recently?

Yeah, I actually rebooted it earlier today.

The issue happens with all of the avi's on my pc. The majority of them are the same setup as the one I analyzed for you since they were done with my home video camera.

The annoying part is that video playback works beautifully outside of media center so I can't see it being a hardware issue.

I'm not very fluent with the whole codec thing, so I don't know whether they're the cause or not.

Any other suggestions?

yep, I have one idea left.
On the Help TAB of the 64bit app, use the button to[List - Enable/Disable Codecs]
scroll down untill you see 'MJPEG Decompressor'
Rightclick on it and choose Disable selected item.

test

If this desnt work, re-enable that the same way you disabled it.

Nope, didn't work.

On the config screen of the 64 bit app there's a "Windows Media Player" section and it says 32 bit player (default). I had read somewhere else that the default WMP was 32 bit, even in a 64 bit install....is this true and that's what the config screen is indicating?

If so, is there anyway I can get WMC to run in 32 bit....aside from re-installing Win 7 in 32 bit?

I'm very new to windows 7 so if the question is completely off base just let me know.

On a Windows 7 64bit system, Media Center is 64bit only using 64bit codecs.
64bit softwares do not interact with 32bit softwares.

I offer the 32/64bit WMP selection for testing purposes only.
